Successes and milestones in our corporate development

2019

For the year 2019 the plan is to successfully launch and integrate the new products on the market.

2018

In 2018 Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH celebrated its 70th anniversary with a celebration at the SMM in Hamburg and a big summer party on the company premises. The year was also marked by the renovation of the roofs of all the production halls and the beginning of the development of new products with which we will enter the Energy Storage Systems, Defence Power and Waste-to-Energy segments in the future.

2017

This year we built 10 generating sets with a total output of 6,000 kW for the Egyptian State Railway Company. In addition, 7 MW left our production facility in a container housing headed for Kawasaki.

2016

Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH has won an EPC contract covering the construction, installation and subsequent operation of a thermal biomass gasification power station with a total electrical output of 5.5 MW.

The new procedural concept for biomass gasification, gas cleaning as well as apparatus construction and control technology originate from the engineering department of Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH.

The total volume of in-house production and delivery is 8 x CHP units of 800 kWe each and 14 x gasifier/gas cleaning units of 400 kW each. This scope also extends to biomass drying, the biomass promotion system and the electrical connection to the public grid.

Following commissioning, Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH will take over operational management for the investor project company for the next 10 years.

2016

The first IMO TIER III type exhaust after-treatment system  wird durch die Klassifikationsgesellschaft LRS auf dem Prüfstand der Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH successfully approved and certified. Thus the Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH GenSets can deliver according to the latest requirements in environmental protection, for the maritime sector also with class certificate.

2016

Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH builds 6,200 marine power generating sets with a total capacity of more than 1,850,000 kWe.

2016

Noise Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH erhält von der DNV-GL die Zulassung gem. SOLAS für die Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH protection hoods for marine applications.

2015

For a customer in Arabia, Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH builds noise protection hoods completely out of stainless steel for the first time. In order to do justice to the small installation space, the hoods each enclose 2 power generating sets. All panels of the hoods can be dismantled at a low opening angle to allow maintenance in the confined space. Special tools and devices make it possible to use the modular system developed by Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH also for stainless steel enclosures.

2015

 Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH builds a power station with a total capacity of 10 MW in Arabia. The fuel used is HFO. Following the successful commissioning, Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH operates the power station for 12 months and trains the customer's staff during this time so that the customer can operate and maintain the station independently after the final handover.

2014

 Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH supplies its 50th power generating set for a cruise ship. To date it has supplied more than 80 power generating sets. With that Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH becomes one of the main suppliers to the cruise industry.

2013

 Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH builds its 5,500th marine generating set.

2012

 Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH supplies the world's first coal gasification power station of this size to Asia. The total capacity of all gasifier reactors is 9 MW.  Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH is responsible in this project for the power generating sets and the entire reactor construction including plant accessories. All system components are installed and put into operation under the overall control of Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH .

2012

Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH obtains BV type approval for cylindrical, stackable LNG storage tanks.

2011

 Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH finally buys the new company premises in Overath, after the location was extensively rebuilt and expanded in 2010 and 2011.

2010

 Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH successfully completes the development of in-house manufactured machine enclosures. The market launch goes without a hitch and generates a positive response from our customers. The enclosures are self-supporting in themselves, with a payload of up to 70 tonnes. The system can be used in the entire industrial as well as in the maritime sector, e.g. on wind platforms.

2010

 Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH successfully completes the development of type-approved spark arresters, exhaust silencers and combinations of spark arrester silencers. With that Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH offers a complete range of approved and classified silencers with or without spark arrestors.

2009

 Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH schließt , together with a well-known engine manufacturer, successfully starts the development of a type-approved marine engine. For the first time in the company's history, it was possible to complete a type-approved marine engine developed in a partnership, followed by a successful market launch of the product.

2009

 Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH signs the purchase contract for the new company premises in Overath.

2008

Despite the global economic crisis, this year for the first time we delivered a total of 900 marine power generating sets all over the world.

2006

Vegetable oil-driven block-type thermal power stations are included in the product range. Intensive and extensive engine-related investigations were necessary for this. This had to go hand in hand with a service structure adapted to customer requirements. Die Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH founds various subsidiaries in order to be able to operate their own vegetable oil-driven block-type thermal power stations at various heating customer sites. We at Lindenberg-Anlagen GmbH lernen, was es bedeutet, 24 Std. rund um die Uhr einen reibungslosen Dauerbetrieb aufrechtzuerhalten, learn what it means to maintain smooth continuous operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, while at the same time being responsible for fuel supply logistics.

2004

ISO-9001:2000 certification for the first time

2000

Standardisation of our marine power generator products according to the latest rules in production technology. The knowledge and experience gained in this way are constantly being further developed and can be found throughout our company today, guaranteeing the quality standards of our customers.

1996–1998

Construction of 6 power stations in Saudi Arabia with a total electrical output of 100 MW for operation with diesel, HFO and crude oil with a flash point of 0°C. 6 Kraftstationen in Saudi-Arabien mit insgesamt 100 MW elektrischer Leistung für den Betrieb mit Diesel, HFO und Crude Oil mit Flammpunkt 0 °C. Als Products from Klöckner-Humbold-Deutz AG – BV16M628 and BV16M640 – were used as drive motors. These were the world's first power stations of this size to be in continuous operation with highly flammable crude oil.
